This is a sign of corrupt Outlook Mac database. This can be resolved by rebuilding the database. Try out these steps:

    1.Quit all applications
    2.Determine the size of your identity
    3.Backup Current identity
    4.Rebuild the database
    5.Create new identity

    In case if this does not resolve your problems then you can fix this issue by using third party software like Stellar Phoenix OLM Repair. I suggest you to try its demo version first: https://www.stellarinfo.com/email-repair/outlook-mac-repair.php

How do I rebuild the outlook 2011 for mac email database?


Hi Scott
I am a Mac User also.
Ran my own Mac repair business for 18 years...
I remember this particular problem with Entourage/Outlook for Mac
I stopped using Outlook & Office years ago because it goes corrupt when too many emails are stored in the email data file. About the 1gb file size. A well known problem. I use Apple Mail these days. Note..It will Import emails from Entourage.
All this data is kept in the Microsoft User Data folder inside Documents Folder... if my memory is correct.
Make a backup copy of this folder if you can... before fiddling.
I used a Microsoft Utility Program called "Microsoft Database Utility" to fix and clean up the Email data file. Then Entourage opened up the email again and I got rid of excessive emails containing photos.
I don't even have MS Office installed on this Mac any more but I have located "Microsoft Database Utility" program which is about 2.3mb in size. It's probably inside your MS Office / Office folder already. Use Apple Spotlight to search or... a free program called EasyFind works great.
Open the program and point it to the Microsoft User Data folder where Entourage email data file is located. To locate the actual email data file...Use "Cmd I" to find size of suspect file. The email data file is a Fairly big one.
I am using a 2007 MacBook Pro running OSX 10.9 Maverics with the free "Pages" for reading Word Doc's & "Numbers" for Excel SS and it all works seamlessly. Dont have a need or want to pay for MS Office anymore as it never got many updates anyhow.

Hope this Fixes your Problem
Cheers
Trevor

On Side Subject.... Depending on age of your Mac...You can get Maverics OSX10.9 for free. Download the flu .DMG file. Use CCC (Carbon Copy Cloner from Bombich Software) to do a full Clone Backup of your current Mac HD to another external hard drive before installing new clean OSX 10.9 system then you get asked to Migrate your old system data back and you end up with a new Mac and all your data in place. Get free "MacTracker" to get your specific Mac Specs & what max OS it will go up to.

How Do I re-build Outlook 2011 for mac Database? Re-cuild utility fails at every attempt?


Even if you manage to rebuild your database, you can't import the data into the windows outlook. Although both versions look the same, they use different database structures. just renaming the data file, only will destroy it, when you try to open it.
just Google for outlook data structure 2010 2011 and read what wikipedia has to say on this.
It will take an expert, to help you with this.

Imac4 was OK but now I get an error message telling me to relaunch Outlook but it will not relaunch


First, start up the computer from Disk 1 of your OS installer if you have it and run Utilities/Disk Utility. Click "Repair Disk" and let the program do its work. If you don't have the install disk handy, you can do the job from the command line as follows:
Start up the computer and immediately hold down the option and S keys. Instead of a normal startup, the screen will go black and give you a whole bunch of reports on startup operations in white type. When this is done, you'll see a command line prompt with the primary user's short name. Type fsck -f and hit <return>. The File System ChecKer will begin doing its work. If it comes up with repairs to do, wait until it's finished and run it again. When it reports, "The volume [volumename] appears to be OK." you can restart by typing reboot and <return>.
Try Outlook again. If it still doesn't work, then open the Microsoft Database Utility. The default location is /Applications/Microsoft Office 2011/Office/ (assuming you have Office 2011, you didn't mention any versions of Office or OS). Click the identity of the database you want to rebuild, then click "Rebuild"
For more information, see this Microsoft Outlook Help page.

Entourage chrashes when I delete sent messages


Hi,

If you already rebuilt the Database and still crashing, that means that your Database(Main Identity) is already corrupted and you need to start a fresh database.

Try deleting the messages in your Webmail if you're using IMAP account. Most likely, that message that was stucked in your deleted items folder is causing the issue.

If you have TimeMachine enabled, restore to the date when Entouarge last worked.
